Remember that video that made the news showing Obama breaking all protocol and bowing to the Saudi king? People were outraged because this expressed subservience rather than being a peer.
Well, maybe Obama was bowing to his patron. In the September 19 episode of The National and International Roundtable, there is an interview with Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour. You can download the episode here. At 1:41 the host says, “We believe that this is information you are not likely to find anywhere else.” Truer words were never spoken! For the very next words out of his mouth are to introduce his guest as a “renowned global speaker, Muslim lawyer, black nationalist, and author,” and claim that he “made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended him for admission to Harvard Law School in 1998.”
If you want to get an idea of where Dr. Khalid Abdullah Tariq Al-Mansour is coming from politically, take a look at his Amazon page. It seems the host was reading from Al-Mansour’s own press release. He seems now to regularly claim to have been Obama’s Harvard patron in his PR clips—as well as point out his own foreign connection. So for a presentation in Jamaica:
Al-Mansour who made news in 2008 when it was revealed that he had been a patron of Barack Obama and had recommended him for admission to Harvard Law School in 1998, is co-founder of the International law firm of Al-Waleed, Al-Talal and Al-Mansour and Special Advisor to Saudi Arabian Prince, His Royal Highness Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulazziz.
Maybe you don’t remember it ever being revealed in 2008 that such a man was Obama’s “patron” to get him into Harvard Law School. That was because the mainstream media suppressed and actively marginalized this TV interview.
The footage was from a local New York City TV news show where an African American entrepreneur and local politician, Percy Sutton, was asked about his thoughts on candidate Obama. Sutton cheerfully recalled that, many years earlier before anyone knew who Obama was, he had been asked by Al-Mansour to recommend Obama to Harvard. He said he did so and claimed at least partial responsibility for Obama’s admission. Al-Mansour has, in the past, denied the story even though it is now appearing in his press releases. Perhaps he will deny it again and blame someone else for the claims.
Nevertheless, after this interview on September 19, new information was revealed on Septmber 22. A reporter for the Daily Inter Lake, Frank Miele, had discovered a 1979 column, “Will Arabs Back Ties to Blacks With Cash?” by syndicated Chicago writer, Vernon Jarrett [Note: you have to scroll over to the right from the headline. For some reason Google News will not directly link it.]
The column mentions Al-Mansour and reveals that,
this black Islamic lawyer who “for several years [had] urged the rich Arab kingdoms to cultivate stronger ties to America’s blacks by supporting black businesses and black colleges and giving financial help to disadvantaged students” was also the same lawyer who allegedly helped arrange for the entrance of Barack Obama into Harvard Law School in 1988.
Miele also notes that Jarrett happened to be a friend of Marxist journalist, and pornographer, Frank Marshall Davis. The same Marshall who eventually left Chicago and came to live in Hawaii, where he had a special role in Obama’s autobiography, Dreams of My Father.
The ramifications of all this are immense. Will anyone investigate it?
